Table 4 Bayesian probability of correct estimation of malaria and anaemia prevalence during presumptive and laboratory diagnosis

From: Symptomatic malaria diagnosis overestimate malaria prevalence, but underestimate anaemia burdens in children: results of a follow up study in Kenya

  Disease prevalence in % Probability of correct estimation of the disease burden
Type of malaria diagnostic Malaria Anaemia Malaria Anaemia
Presumptive diagnosis 64.7 Not tested 0.571 0.034
Laboratory test 31.3 19.7 0.994 0.932
